This seems like fantastic news after the HEVC patent disaster.

Has anyone tested this or has more information on the performance/quality vs other codecs?

I have, at my website (for objective metrics) http://arewecompressedyet.com/

Summary is that Thor is performing at a slightly better level than Daala and worse than VP9 or H265. But it's also missing a lot of features right now, and the encoder is only tuned for PSNR.
